Orthopaedic Surgery Seminar - The Stifle | Centre for Veterinary Education

Orthopaedic Surgery Seminar - The Stifle

Injury and disease of the stifle forms a large part of clinical orthopaedic practice.

Long-term intensive investigation of the commonly encountered conditions has resulted in both a large body of knowledge and advanced surgical treatments. As a result the surgeon must possess detailed and current information and have relevant experience in treating stifle disease to meet the expectations of both the public and the profession. 

This 1-day seminar is aimed at providing the practitioner with up-to-date information on disease, diagnosis and treatment across the full range of stifle conditions encountered in the dog and cat. A detailed review will be provided for the commonly occurring cranial cruciate ligament disease and medial patellar luxation, along with critical examination of current evidence that can guide good decision making and procedure selection.
